Verónica Barbato

EMPIREO

Dimensions: 19.6 x 14cm

Printed on Baryta paper

Limited Edition of 5 + Artist Proofs

2021

"Born only from an introspective curiosity, Empireo is the result of eyes that look towards the invisible. The absence of external stimuli during the pandemic prompted the artist Veronica Barbato to search within herself for creative impulse, with patience and study. This experimentation is an investigation imbued with sincere spirituality: the rarefied and casual shapes, together with the variety of colors, refer to the intellectual, warm and celestial light, emanating from the Empyrean - the outermost sky, a spiritual place dedicated to God.The constant research that has supported the realization of the works is inspired by tending towards the ideal and the infinite natue of the most distant sky.Empyrean consists of a series of statues and photographs, reached by taking into consideration every aspect of the experimentation that preceded their creation.The first, numerous and different, takes on multiple shapes and colors, enhanced by the irregular surface of the poly foam urethane. The photographic series portrays sections of colored cellophane, their shapes achieved in a completely random way. Their colorful weaves and the clarity of the colors abstract us from reality, transporting us to a different, overlying dimension made of light and intellect." – by Eleonora Savorelli
